There is something very wrong.

We are a genetic creation which has been manipulated and culled since the dawn of our manufacturing. We are a slave species created via splicing of dna from cro-magnon man and an advanced alien race, to be used as cheap labor to exploit this planet for their greedy purposes.

The greatest deception that has been cast upon us is the idea that we are helpless to prevent our demise. The very thought is poison. We can change our fate.

I will change our fate, even if I must do it alone.

The 'experiment gone wrong' is interesting and possibly valid for a few reasons... our seeming mix of genes (ape, pig, alien?) and relative appearance from nowhere of the modern human (our out-of-place intelligence) and human's pervasive sense of "wrongness", our weird lack of vit C processing ... like the lysine deficient dinosaurs in Jurassic Park... maybe for the same reasons to control us from straying far?

But the real biggie is the near undeniable presence of another intelligence in Earth's shadows... and that intelligences' oft reported interest in our dna.

It reminds me of a disturbing story in the media when dna first started being spliced by us... a pig had some human dna spliced into it and besides a notable rise in its intelligence, it tended to stare off in the distance in a corner of its pen, unlike all the "regular" pigs around it.

Reminded me of an animal with heightened awareness of its situation, its otherness and mortality and the resultant depression that might come from such awareness... whether the story was accurate or not... it could be.

If I could just Star You for One Hr, Click, Click, Click! Yet most do not understand what you just said. The only person, world one can save it their Own!

How can one person save an entire World and not save themselves? Some would find this somewhat odd, mean and go ahead; speak! People go about trying to save everything, yet lagging on doing what should have been done before. Yourself!

So it seem weird, yet if everyone would do this one simple thing. We would all be Okay! How can one Give out Love if never knowing Love for themselves? If you actually Love Yourself, Humans would not be so cruel to each Other. Why would God come to help you if your doing what everybody else is? One can pray all they want, use any spell, trick or game. Only in the end it is You Doing It!

When you can say I Love Myself and mean it! You would not do anything to Others, harm anything and actually enjoy Life! Since Loving Yourself you Know the Pain so what dish it Out?

Thats the Only True Love People! Everything else is just a game and nothing more. Reading what you just said means their is still Hope! Love Exist and I can carry on another day! Thank You!

What I believe is happening is the awakening in america that we were sent to wars to fight for democracy. Yes, some of us actually believed it.

Then we sold ours to the billionaires.

I see my grown up children get laid off one job and find another one for less wages. The latest went from a $15/hr to $10/hr. We keep expecting our young people to do the right thing. What would that be and with what and for whom?

I regret to inform you that I too am disgusted with the world.

I'm more disgusted and saddened that I don't see it getting any better. Especially not before it gets worse.

I'm not in to doom porn, but if It were me looking down on this planet? I'd hit the big red reset button without a second thought.

I don't mean kill everyone off, that's morbid. But society, money, governments, religion. Everything is CORRUPT and needs a complete reset. All of the above can bring so much joy, health and happiness if grounded correctly.

It's gone too far, and it's really disturbing.

Disgusted. Disappointed. Confused. Puzzled. Annoyed. And sometimes hopeless (sometimes).

I dont get it. I dont understand it.

I feel as if people literally hate one another. When they dont hate one another, they couldnt care less about one another. Our human society will see unthinkable suffering, then turn around and buy a hot dog. I just dont get it.

Imagine being an intelligent Ethiopian woman who had, through extreme adversity, managed to live into her late forties and had just gained access to cable TV. You then, not really having much of a clue as to how other people lived, started watching MTV cribs and then found out that about 1% of the Earths 9 billion people are financially wealthier than the other 99% combined but do not realy share their wealth to help others; even though they do-not need even a tiny percentage of it to live a good life. What would cross your mind?

An experiment I would say yes on that part. An experiment gone wrong, meh! Well that just depends on your outlook, all life is trial and error, over time you will come to feel and know many emotions, the list is ever on going. But eventually through the eons and as a species and an individual entity you will come to get over them all, and sometimes the path to perfection and heaven is strewn right through hell, but if you ever get through hell pretty much any place you end up is a better place.

And gone wrong to is just a matter of perspective, which brings me to the world of today. Its in all just a matter of you, them, the whole worlds both individually and on mass scale, its perspective, its being, is broadened a bit. However you go to far on that end and it will not only stretch the limits of sanity, but the limits of reality. This reality can be phased out, but that does not mean its not real, everything is real when its in your focus. But I dont know, why ask questions to which you would not like the answers to?

Fact is generally stranger then fiction, and the truth is generally more sobering and more cold then the warm fuzzy feelings of lies, and just like ignorance is bliss, sometimes the truth is like steeping in a cold shower, so when you get that funny cold feeling in your stomach, look around because you just may be in the presence of a truth. The world to me is going and has gone on as it always has, there are ups and there are downs. Sometimes I get a thrill from the ups, and sometimes from the downs. And everything is merely what it is, but that does not mean I will except it all as it is.

I'd imagine their thought process would be quite short and would contain probably only one profanity.

Use your imagination and pick from the list below:

C _ _ _ _
W _ _ _ _ _ _
P _ _ _ _ _
A _ _ _ _ _ _ _

I'd like to think that not having come from a civil society, that is also not governed by laws that prevent evil and greedy people coming to harm, they would raise hell and seek out those 1% and jab them with some sharp primitive handcrafted ancestral Etheopian tool.

Lots of horrors in mid-east, China, South Korea....but for me, the situation in the US has been most troubling.

I've watched personal liberties slip away, seen news organizations in US turn into pure propaganda machines, watched the possibility of positive race relations evaporate, and witnessed the election of an arrogant man who has absolutely no qualifications to be president of anything.

I was a JFK democrat my whole life--so to see democrats blindly defending their leader in the face of NSA and IRS scandals--while he maintains the worst policies of the Bush administration--to see democrats defend his continual dishonesty is by far the most disgusting, disturbing thing happening today.

The majority are slaves to minority. This has happened in the past, for instance the Roman empire to name but one, however, the latter eventually collapsed. I see sickening levels of inequality being the cause of the next one too. It seems, like every other aspect of life, to work in a feedback cycle. This situation has TPTB panicking and could account for many contemporary ideas, eugenics for one.

What you have to understand is that the prison system is heavily privatized, meaning it is all about profits. If those profits are made by over the top, heavy handed sentencing, then that's exactly what we'll see.

I often hear stories from my Dad about what they did when growing up, and if kids the same age did the same things today they would be put in jail and have a black mark next to their name for the rest of their life. Yet in my Dad's day it was dismissed as "boys being boys", or worst case scenario being given a slap on the wrist and a warning from the local policeman. If the boys didn't learn there lessen, THEN a more heavy handed approach was taken until they did. They were given a chance to change their ways rather then having a mistake as a youth haunt them forever.

There will always be youth that just don't learn, and sometimes the reality of jail is the only wake up call they will listen to. But some of the things I see people jailed for today is borderline ridiculous.

We often hear that sending people to jail is all about rehabilitating them to re-enter society in a safe manner, yet if someone commits a lower end of the spectrum crime and shows genuine remorse and sorrow for their actions, then what point is it sending them to jail ?
Instead of sending a young kid to jail for stealing a pair of shoes, why not make him work at the shop they stole from a week or a month to see how hard it is to run a business, let alone having to cover the cost of theft ? Who knows, this could even lead to future employment if they worked with the right attitude and showed genuine remorse ? Wouldn't this approach be better then putting them in a cell with a possible murderer or rapist, and then IF they survive their sentence they still have the black mark of being in prison that will severally harm their chances of finding work and "re-entering society" ?

Yes! It's overwhelming at times.

ITA with being disgusted at what we humans have done and are doing. However, I don't think we have gotten worse than we ever have been, just that our toys have changed. We see more of what is going on than we used to and more of it is happening because our population has obviously grown. We are just as disgusting as we have always been, just the frequency and visibility have exploded...along with my head.

I don't think the world is much different from the way it has always been except for one thing and that is our mastery over the material world. That has increased significantly and with it our power to express both the best and the worst of human impulses has also increased.

But essentially, people are as they have been for many centuries at least. Human beings have changed, I think, from the way they were hundreds of thousands of years ago but I think those changes are very slight and might have happened at a rate which would be comparable to the rate at which major geological changes occur, i.e. very slowly.

So what's wrong?

I think scientific materialism has set up unrealistic expectations and unrealistic ambitions in our minds. One might call this psychological environment, scientific or materialistic fantasism, to coin a word.

By denying the existence of a spiritual dimension to life, science has led a portion of humanity, mainly the industrialized West, down a path of experiential or existential dissonance. An analogy would be driving the family sedan off the road into the ditch and then into the rocky fields beyond the ditch, all the while assuring your panicky wife that you are not lost.

That's our problem. We are lost and off the track. We are using mallets and crowbars to address problems that require a watchmaker's precision. A lot of the time this is being done to cut costs, particularly the cost of labor. Labor intensive work is backward, you see, and unscientific. It can be done much more efficiently if done scientifically, without regard to emotional, psychological, ethical, moral, historical, traditional and last but not least, comfortable ways of doing things.

People don't have to put up with it. They should walk off the job and opt out of the crapola.

Everything, it seems, is in a bad state. I look around I see it here. I go somewhere else, I see it there. Cell phone towers? WIFI? Fluoride? Something has definitely happened.

Maybe it's just human nature? Maybe people change? I know, at times, I feel like the only sane SOB in the world.

i dislike these kinds of threads, their so primitive. Yeah a lot of things about the world are messed up, it always has been. why don't you do something about it. You can stop by not being negative and whiny.
